Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Yarn Spinner is the open source dialogue engine inspired by Twine and used in 2017’s “Night in the Woods”.

Along the way, we’ll discuss some advanced uses of the system, and ways to improve the lives of both programmers and writers.
